    Probably not actually, since we all know that each device gets their own device specific firmware/build of the OS, so it could very well be that the 950XL has specific issues that aren't present in the 950.
    could be related to screen size and scaling... there was a bug early on that stopped previews coming to the larger phones, including the 1520, but that was a LONG time back...
    Here's hoping they can fix whats wrong soon... im still aiming for the 950XL and not the 950

    Hi,

    Any Idea when Unlocked 950 XL will be available in Canada.

    So with the announcement of 10586 for mobile being delayed until next week, I suppose my hopes of the 950xl going on sale this weekend have been dashed. Looks like the 20th is still the most likely day, unless something unexpected happens.

    So while we're waiting for the 950XL:

    On MotoMaker, I know it's possible to buy a carrier sim for US$5 (since my wife is considering one).

    Does anyone know if ATT in the US will just replace my existing mini-sim with a new nano-sim for the 950XL? Is there likely to be a way to just buy the sim from MS when I pre-order?

    SIMs cost about a penny to make. T-Mobile will give customers a new SIM if they change to a phone with a different size SIM, They gave me a nano when I bought my 1520.3, so they don't even care if it's a phone they sell.

    I would expect AT&T to do the same. If they won't and you don't like other alternatives, you can DIY. There are adapters to use a smaller SIM in a phone that takes a larger one and larger SIMs can be trimmed to make a smaller size which kind of makes you wonder why they didn't start with nano size.

    If you keep a backup phone that uses a different SIM size, one or the other needs an adapter anyway.

    I got an adapter kit from Amazon to put my nano sim from my iPhone 6S Plus into the 950 XL.

    Yes, ATT will replace your sim free of charge. If not, just go to another store and ask nicely.

    They both have nano. No adapter needed.

    Nice! I originally ordered the kit for my first ever Windows Phone, the 640 ($60 to test out the platform seemed like a no-brainier to me). Guess that makes it one more reason to switch from an iPhone!

    Do the Microsoft stores have demo models of the 950 and XL back in store yet? Hard to believe they don't with only a week until release (at least for the 950).

    you have to find a corporate store, not an independently owned store.

    didnt know there were independently owned Microsoft stores :)
    I think you meant independent ATT (or ATT authorized) stores?

    Yes, I just walked into the AT&T store and they gave me one when I got a new phone for my wife that required a nano...

    Didn't realize the 950XL will need a Nano Sim?? Well guess the first thing I'll be doing when I get my XL is head up to my AT&T store for a new Sim, I would think Nano is as small as Sims will get, although I thought that with the Micro lol.

    When switching to Cricket a couple months ago I couldn't find a store, including Amazon, with micro sims. Had to get their nanosim and adapter.

    All T-mobile Sims are multi-sized now. They snap out at three different sizes including micro and nano. I have mine snapped at micro now in my 925. I'll be breaking it down to nano size for my 950xl. :D

    Yet my 640XL does not?? Curious why the 830 which was released last year has a nano but the 640XL which was released months ago is still micro?? Not that it matters, the 950XL is coming soon :)

    The authorized AT&T dealer near me has several sim cutters. They also offered to replace my sim at no charge. I'll be visiting there the day I get my 950XL, unless I get too impatient, I have a Swiss Army knife.

    Quite typical that mid range or flagship uses nano sim while low end uses micro sim. True for Android phones as well. Probably something to do with cost.

    Well guys, it seems we've almost made it. The light at the end of the tunnel is nearing! Nov. 20th will be a happy day for everyone in the US (who was waiting on this phone). Less than a week now and we'll have this precious beast in our hands.

    But I'm not excited or anything.
